Hidden among the graffiti in Bieber's newest video is an apparent shout out to Gomez
Sharp-eyed viewers point out Gomez’s first name spray-painted on a graffiti-filled wall in the background of the new video. The wall also features the words “love” and “hope.”
Gomez’s name appears in a scene where Bieber and model Xenia Deli wind up at a skate park.
On Monday, however, Bieber refuted the story, saying, “I think that might be fake,” before adding, “it wasn’t me that did that.”
The former couple had a tumultuous on-and-off relationship before finally calling it quits for good in 2012. The relationship rumor mill started churning again in July, but a source confirmed they weren’t back together.
“She has no interest [in dating him],” the source, who’s close to Gomez, said at the time. “There’s nothing going on with them romantically at all.”
